Planning for Long Term School Closures
By now your head is probably swirling with all the information about the Novel Coronavirus. It’s important to stay updated and informed but it’s equally important to stay calm, take deep breaths, and plan for the future.
On March 17th Governor Gavin Newsom stated … that public schools across the state, many of which are already closed until early April to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, may stay shuttered for the rest of the school year.
“Let me be candid … don’t anticipate schools are going to open up in a week, please don’t anticipate in a few weeks,” Newsom said, acknowledging that “6-plus million kids in our system and their families need to make some plans.”
“I would plan and assume that it is unlikely that many of these schools, few if any, will open before the summer break,” the governor said.
At Groza Learning Center our experienced education specialists are ready to support and guide your family during these unprecedented times. We understand that this is a very stressful time for parents and children. Many children are self-motivated and will be able to keep up with their curriculum, however, there are also children who will require more direction, structure, and guidance in order to ensure continuity. We can create, customize, and implement a long term learning plan for your child.
We are offering online tutoring and test prep using video conferencing with an interactive whiteboard and screen sharing. Sessions will be held in-center today, March 2oth for those previously scheduled. However, as of 11:59 pm, we will be closing in compliance with the “Safer at Home” ordinance. We will continue to keep you updated and informed. We are here to help and are easily accessible, call or email us with any questions or concerns. Let’s work together to ensure our kids are given the tools and resources they need to grow and thrive.
